Your Habits & Your Life: Thursday, January 24

Thursday, January 24, 3:45 – 5:15 pm
A Socratic Conversation conducted by Ron Gross

in Columbia University area (120th St. and Broadway), but RSVP required to obtain exact location/address — please write to Ron Gross at

Aristotle declared that “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a HABIT.” 

Now, educators, psychologists, social scientists, organizational leaders, and people like us are re-discovering the power of this discipline which has been neglected for several decades. It has been harnessed for good and not-so-good, by marketers at Proctor & Gamble and Target, CEOs at ALCOA and Starbucks, and other organizations ranging from the Civil Rights Movement to major churches.
Most importantly, each of us can use it to transform our lives.

Please join us to share your opinions, experiences, and reflections:

What are some good and bad habits?
 Would you like to change any of your habits, or cultivate any new ones? How do habits determine how we vote, what we buy, who we know, and how we keep healthy, or get sick?

Suggested optional reading:
THE POWER OF HABIT, by Charles Duhigg.
